Vintage description:

After a very long wet and cold winter, the spring of 2014 showed good promise. Our hopes for a decent yield were given a second blow by an unseasonal cold front in the middle of November. Gale force winds with icy rain caused damage in the middle of our flowering season.

 The rest of our summer season was dominated by dry East winds. The smaller crop and dry conditions further helped the earlier ripening of this harvest. Our harvest commenced on the 2nd of February, one week earlier than normal.   Healthy grapes with smaller berries and less juice was the norm. 

“In the cellar we have wines with an abundance of clean, ripe fruit and higher extraction owing it to the lower production and optimum ripeness, all in all its a case of less is more!”-Conrad Vlok
